Paint It Jack 1 comment

Sing along time: “Paint It Jack”
(apologies to the Rolling Stones and Paint It Black)

We see an internet post and we want it painted Jack
No kittens any more, we want them to be Jack
He sees the squirrels run by and chases the mean ole crows
We put a toy on his head and wait for his dumb ole prose

Each day we see objects and want them put on Jack
With patience and balance he really has a knack
We see people crack smiles and try to turn away
Like a daily comic strip it just happens every day

We look inside ourselves and see our heart is Jack
We see a red ball and we want to paint it Jack
Maybe then we’ll laugh today and not have to face the facts
Life’s not easy but better when your whole world is Jack

Admit it at least one time coffee you did spew
Jack did foresee this thing happening to you
If we laugh hard enough that coffee pours from your nose
Your love will laugh too at Jack’s pics and daily woes

We see an internet post and we want it painted Jack
No kittens any more, we want them to be Jack
He sees the squirrels run by and chases the mean ole crows
We put a toy on his head and wait for his dumb ole prose

Hmm, hmm, hmm,..

We wanna see it painted, painted Jack
Jack is right, Jack is cool
We wanna see his name plotted out in the sky
We wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted Jack

Yeah!

Hmm, hmm, hmm…


Dogs of Summer 1 comment

Sing along time “The Dogs Of Summer”
(Apologies to Don Henley: Boys of Summer)

Pawprints on the road
Pawprints on the beach
Wet dog smell in the air
The dog went to the beach
Doggie break, doggie treat
The fun goes down as we roam
If you went to his house
He was out and not home

But you can see him-
Wet black fur shinin’ in the sun
He’s got his hair matted back and his tongue out baby
And he’ll tell you even though summer’s gone, his fun isn’t done
After the dogs of summer have gone

We will never forget the sight
Soon it will be a dream
Chasin critters while sun was blazin
Now we do it all by moon beam
Now it gets dark quick and we will have to wear gloves
But hey, fun will always be back
And we’ll see what dog fun is made of

But you can see him-
Wet black fur shinin’ in the sun
He’s got his hair matted back and his tongue out baby
And he’ll tell you even though summer’s gone, his fun isn’t done
After the dogs of summer have gone

Out in the yard today, saw a toad hopping after a fly like a maniac
Dad’s voice got really loud and he said “Leave it alone. Let’s go get you a bone.”
We went in and watched tv
What was the show?
Something about whatever
Just in but want out again-

But you can see him-
Wet black fur shinin’ in the sun
He’s got his hair matted back and his tongue out baby
And he’ll tell you even though summer’s gone, his fun isn’t done
After the dogs of summer have gone`

But you can see him-
Wet black fur shinin’ in the sun
He’s got his tongue hanging out and his hair matted baby
And he’ll tell you even though summer’s gone, his fun isn’t done
After the dogs of summer have gone
